Youth 4 Community
December 7, 2018
The United Way Youth 4 Community funding application period is now closed
Between October 15 – December 7 this year, students from local participating high schools have the opportunity to host fundraisers.
All funds raised will go into the United Way of Thunder Bay Youth 4 Community Fundraising & Granting Initiative (Y4C). These funds will be reserved solely for youth programs, services and projects carried out by local registered charitable organizations in Thunder Bay. The Youth 4 Community program works within the United Way Focus Area: “All that Kids Can Be” and agencies can use the funding to focus in one or more of the following youth priority areas: Recreation and Neighbourhood youth hubs; Anti-Rasicm and Discrimination; and Youth Involvement/ Leadership.
This program was developed to bring youth leaders from the local high schools together to learn more about philanthropy, project management and decision making and create awareness of issues and challenges that are being experienced by youth here in Thunder Bay.
Thank you to all schools who took part in this initiative. The Youth 4 Community Fundraising & Granting Initiative was able to raise over an incredible $11,600 for much needed youth programs. A huge thank you also goes out to Scotiabank, who generously donated $4000 to this initiative!
